“Look through our history; America’s the violent one.”- Tupac Shakur
Sadly and tragically Tamir Rice and the countless other young Black males who’ve been slaughtered by the cops in 2015 are not the beginning of the horrors the police hold. Nor is this something that just started and will pass. I started working against racism and police brutality at 14, about 10 years in now I see a massive change; people are waking up and fighting back… This video is the story of another one of the cases that didn’t get the attention deserved. He deserves to be remembered… So…
Devin Brown was the first child murdered by the police I did research and reports on. He was 13 years old and had his life stolen, like so many other young Black males. I make this video to honor him, for the moment I
saw his photo and smile, my heart gave away. Devin was only a child with so much life and potential; just like every other victim these racist and power crazed cops have stolen or beaten, or both. It’s time for change, we’ve been saying that for gods know how long now; but I see hope… For when I first started, no one cared about these cases. Now people are paying attention and responding… I see hope now; I see us finally coming to life and uniting for a real cause; for something worth fighting and if need be dying for: justice, equality and peace.
Never forget this young man’s name. Devin Brown. Let us not let him, Tamir Rice or any of the other countless victims -no matter the year- be in vain. It’s time for justice; it’s time to end racism and stop cops from murdering and then simply walking away, all because of their badge… Badge to murder without punishment. Beat without punishment. Harass, without punishment. We must not let up until we have justice and equality!
May all your precious souls be in a better place; a happier place… And blessed… We will never forget you… Not one of you.
